Jharkhand’s growth not possible without tribal development: Raghubar Das

Jamshedpur, August 30: Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Sunday harped on the inclusive growth of the locals along with industrial progress.

Addressing the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples function at Football Ground in Chaibasa, West Singhbhum he said that the Government wants to ensure all-around development of the people.

Das said that in the next five years the face of Kolhan will change. He announced a steel plant will be set up in Manoharpur in the next one year along with three steel plants all over Kolhan.

Steel Authority of India (SAIL) will set up its plant at West Singhbhum that will usher new industrial revolution in the district. He said that the work will commence within six months.

This will pave way for the employment generation and industrial growth too.

It may be recalled that the steel major SAIL chairman CS Verma had in the past announced that SAIL would set up a 4 MTPA pelletisation plant and a 10MTPA beneficiation facility, investing close to Rs 3,000 crore at Gua Mines area.

CM further said that he wants to make dreams of people come true who sacrificed their lives for Jharkhand “Our Government is dedicated towards the progress of tribal population.

We want to ensure growth of the local tribals and their participation in the production and this will ensure social peace,” said Das. Government will work to ensure balanced and all round growth of the state and will adopt 250 villages of Kolhan Division under the scheduled tribe village development program, he added.

He also said state has progressed much from where it was in 2000, when Jharkhand was formed, but need to accelerate the pace of the development.

Das further said, “For every tribal, it is important to know and understand their culture. They must live with it and take initiatives to preserve it for it is their sole responsibility to save it and pass on to their next generation.

Growth of a language and its literature is the responsibility of the people of that particular community who use it and who would create its literature. International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples reminds us the indispensability of those things. Government will provide support and resources but the tribal groups have to do the rest.”

The Chief Minister also asked Louis Marandi the Minister for Welfare, Social Welfare, Women and Child Development, to ensure that the issues of the local people are solved.

Every year, 9th August is commemorated as the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. The day is celebrated with special events around the world, including at United Nations Headquarters.

This year’s theme puts a spotlight on the issue of indigenous peoples’ access to health care services, as improving indigenous peoples’ health remains a critical challenge for indigenous peoples.
